5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Hands down the best beer I have ever had. So sweet and so seductive.Unfortunately it is breaking the bank. I’ve bought 4 cases(at 116.00 a case after tax) and around 20 separate bottles(@12.00 a piece). I only have 8 bottles left.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh bomber at my place to the face. Pours thin black with tiny head that disappears quickly. Aroma is burnt bread crust and Caramelized sugar. Taste is sweet burnt pumpkin pie crust, light malt, sugar. Finish is medium to long and thin. Interesting brew, too much going on to drink a lot of it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours far with a finger of tan head. Aroma is that of a sugary cereal. A few spices come through in the taste, with cinnamon taking first place.
In retrospect, the cereal it smelled of was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. That makes sense as the cinnamon and lactose mirror the cereal'a artificial sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Color is a dark brown with red highlights. Thin head of white swirls. Aroma is mild - only some malt sweetness. The flavor is lightly creamy with the sweet malt character, and what must be the lactose sweetness blending together. No hop presence to speak of and the body is thinner than I expected. Rather disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at MacGregors. I was really looking forward to this but was somewhat unimpressed. Not too dark of a brown with reddish highlights. Some standard stout malty notes in the nose, roasted and toasted elements. Dark chocolate, creamy palate, nice mouthfeel. A session stout was very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a pint glass. Pours deep black with a moderate tan head. The head fades to a bare cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of coffee and roasty, smokey malts along with a touch of earth. The flavour starts out lightly sweet and becomes a little more so. Roasty notes and coffee carry over from the aroma and join hints of chocolate and soy. Herbal hops enter towards the end. The finish is long with lots of coffee and roasty malts. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a creamy-syrupy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a decent cream stout with coffee notes. It has a nice fresh aroma but it is not the most complex. 2011-11-15
